Job Hunting Update Jan. 2010

It's been one full year of joblessness.  I'd been spending most of it studying up for the CompTIA A+ certification exams.

The CompTIA A+ 220-601 Certification for Essentials?  Tried it twice, once in December and once this month.  Missed both times by what looks to be one question (arrrrgggghhhhhh)

The CompTIA A+ 220-602 Certification for IT Technician?  Tried it last week.  Passed by what looks to be 1.5 questions!  (wooooohoooooooooooooooo yeah baby yeah I RULE I RULE)

Problem is I still need the Essentials to be fully certified for computer tech support.  And the problem there is the CompTIA exams are upgrading to cover more Vista (why?!  Vista sucked!) and some Win7 (which should be more appropos).  So I gotta keep studying and re-trying for the 601 701 exam.  Sigh.

Meanwhile, I can send out more resumes and try more job possibilities and... and... there's not much else to do with a state unemployment rate at 13 percent AND GROWING.  I shoulda been a CEO...
